is a professor of law at osu and jim heath, a host of the sunday morning show -- guest: capitol square. host: let's go to steve on the phone. caller: i had seen some ads running in our area and i've been put off with the negativity. there was one in particular, my being an independent and very libertarian, i did not like the way the health care thing went on. so i am leaning more toward romney. it was one ad that the president was running about the automobile industry and how they saved over 100,000 jobs in ohio, automobile-related. it does not really mention that honda is the largest manufacturer in the state and did not get bailout money. ford and honda both hired more people than gm combined. host: thanks for the caller. we will get a response. guest: i don't have any particular response to that, but you see a lot of claims made in ads, some more true than the others. in terms of the economy in ohio, the unemployment rate across the state is about 7%. national average is now 7.8%. in other parts of the country like detroit, it's above 10%, get the -- yet that seems to be a case strongly democ

from missouri. let's go to the phones and get the callers involved. this is jim in waterbury, connecticut. good morning. go ahead. caller: linda mcmahon it said that chris murphy was not there in congress 90% of the time to make votes on issues. is that a fair accusation? is that just sort of how congress works that -- works now? guest: beat -- host: before we let you go, what is it like there in connecticut now? guest: last time she really bombarded you. it is a pretty bad race, a lot of mudslinging. host: ken rudin? guest: this is a state that they have no business being competitive in. the former chief executive of the world wrestling federation, linda mcmahon, spent $50 million in a big republican year and lost still by 12 points. she got some sort of complete makeover this year? or she is warm and folksy? she is taking chris murphy as someone who is out of touch. i still think that he has a slight lead, but the polls show them as dead even. democrats should definitely worry. this is the one where joe lieberman is retiring. host: new york, trevor, republican. caller: good
thought mr. romney was very disingenuous. i watched the debates from top to bottom. jim lehrer asked mr. romney whether he supported the the vouchers that mr. ryan would be introducing to senior citizens. he dodged that question like a football player going through a pittsburgh steelers last night. i am a little cleared out. i would appreciate a lot more honesty on mr. romney's part. i probably will be leading toward the president. i am still winning. host: do you have two minutes? stay on the line. we will get a romney supporter on the line. i want to hear a little back and forth that we will moderate here. caller: sure. thank you. host: what did you think of the debate? caller: i enjoyed it and i thought to mitt romney 1. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would l
back if the republicans decide their first mission it can no longer be with senator jim demint. mitch mcconnell said the first priority was to make sure obama was it first term president. there was the possibility of working on different issues. if you have some good progressives reelected --share -- youeth warren have a chance to find partnership on core issues. even something the chamber of commerce signed onto. this country could use an infrastructure bank that would put bpeople back to work and rebuild the infrastructure. with mitt romney, you need somebody to, and that will understand that 47% of americans are not freeloaders but part of a political system and a country that deserves the respect. paul ryan has put forward a budget. another of them have fully explain how that would cut tax rates 20% across the board. what kind of loopholes would they find? that is a tough fight to have in a congress where there is a belief in a fair shot. host: next is a caller from iowa, lowarry. caller: hi. thank you for taking my call. i watch too often. i have a big problem with republicans, w
